As a resident of Tulum, you learn to think about several factors when going out for food: taste, consistency, cost, convenience, and availability. El Gourmet has them all! The panini are always fresh, crisp, warm and DELICIOUS. I must confess that it's hard to order a salad when you can have sopressata and asiago on yummy bread, but their salads... More

I have lived in Tulum 2 years and for some reason I kept forgetting about this place. Now that they moved off the main avenita, it is easy to get to. I had a shake and panini. It was awesome. I will definitely be back for more. And the service was great also!!

So great to have this restaurant back up. I had my favorite salad just now. The deli fridge is well stocked, as before. Such a friendly place--Diego always has people laughing. I highly recommend, as before. I like the new venue--it is a bit less frenetic than on the avenue.

Outstanding, both in food and service, a little gem in the town of Tulum! Great sandwiches, I'd suggest in an Italian style, full of flavour. Great juices... coffee...They are in the process of moving and have been closed for quite a few weeks, I've been riding past every few days hoping to see it open.

I have eaten at many gourmet places before and to be brutally honest the food here is not gourmet quality. I ordered a simple sandwich and I was quite disappointed that the bread was slightly soggy, to be honest the sandwiches seemed a little throw together and the ingredients were not very fresh... that being said the service was outstanding...

I'm slightly addicted to the warm panini's from El Gourmet. The bread is crispy and warm, the ingredients flavourful and the presentation is very cute. The juices are always fresh and served in big glasses. They also sell products like fresh bread and imported cheeses, meats and more, it's truly the best place in Tulum to go for these kind... More

El Gourmet Tulum is a store specialised in customising the best panini and salad ever. We also have a wide variety of cold meats & imported cheese such as speck, bresaola, prosciutto, gorgonzola, fontina, emmental, parmigiano, among others. All our bread is daily baked to be used in our sándwiches and salads or to be sold on its own. Desserts are to be tried for sure!. Really good coffee, and the freshest juices and fruit water are prepared as soon as it is ordered! The freshness and love that are used in the production is what differenciates El Gourmet from other places! Come to visit us! You will feel at home!
